Elvis Presley Enterprises is excited to share with you that FedEx Forum is now confirmed as the venue for Elvis: The 30th Anniversary Concert, to be presented on August 16, 2007 as part of Elvis Week 2007 in Memphis, Tennessee. By policy of FedEx Forum we had to wait until our contract with them was finalized before announcing the location. That involved process wrapped up within the last 24 hours.
Production-wise the concert, as previously announced, will be something on the scale of our major concert presentations for the 20th Anniversary in 1997 (Mid-South Coliseum) and the 25th Anniversary in 2002 (The Pyramid). Once again we will bring together a large cast of Elvis's former bandmates playing live on stage with Elvis Presley, via video, starring in the show. Another truly historic and unforgettable event.
Signed so far are Joe Guercio (musical director & conductor) and the TCB Band: James Burton (lead guitar), Glen D. Hardin (piano), Jerry Scheff (bass guitar) and Ronnie Tutt (drums). Many other Elvis bandmates are already "holding the date" and each will be announced as their commitments to the show firm up over the course of the weeks and months ahead.
Tickets are expected to go on sale sometime in the third or fourth quarter of this year. The on-sale date will be announced well in advance to give fans time to prepare.
